Pokemon Sword & Shield RUMOR & SPECULATION Thread [Spoiler-Prone Area]

Discussion in 'Pokémon Sword & Shield Discussion' started by WishIhadaManafi5, Jun 1, 2019.

    I'd love to see the first Poison legendary
    But if it's a snake and horse.... why are the logos wolves? That doesn't really make much sense cause the starters certainly aren't wolves
    Perhaps one of the side legendaries can be the Poison type

    They did, I stopped reading that soon as I read that line. It basically confirmed it as fake.

    It's possible that the wolf is instead the third legendary, but I highly doubt that.

    Guess both leaks were proven right!

    Really surprised (but glad) that they’re keeping encounters like they were in Let’s Go. But how come they weren’t like that in the first trailer...?

    Can someone please link these leaks? I'm enticed and a bit out of the loop.

    Sorry, but linking to them isn't allowed.

    If you want to find some of them, they're on Twitter, via @LeaksPokemon.

    YOOMTAH Let's dance~

    I think the Let's Go encounters is exclusive to the Wild Areas. They showed the old-school encounters in bushed as well in a regular route

    There's a leak floating that has everything in the Direct correct. It says that Scorbunny...

    ...remains pure Fire throughout, but learns several Fighting moves.
    Note it made a type saying pure Fighting.

    I'm waiting on that one until we get more info.

    Just to be clear, due to the anonymous nature of the board, it's impossible to know for sure if the same person who made the thread is the one who did the reply talking about the starters evolutions. People should have that in mind. But, honestly, since nobody could tell back then that leak was the real deal, I don't think someone would jump the wagon and pretend to be the original poster, so I'm assuming it really was the same person.

    So until proof in contrary, I will narrow my expectations to what is said there and not hope for anything outside what range those descriptions give us (I will stop commenting on their possible evolutions from now on to avoid spoiling people who don't want to read the leaks).

    Lol, really much turned out to be true so this one looks like a reliable one.

    However, one error could bring it all down. I'm waiting for more info to confirm this as real though.

    Not necessarily. Leaks that contain real information have had wrong tidbits too, pretty much everything revealed today is in that leak.

    There's always the chance that they only had info about the direct and filled it with a bunch more stuff, so like any leak we'll have to wait. I hope that's the case because gigantamaxing sounds dumb as **** lol.

    Even the Characters names are matching which would be really hard to make out.

    Yes and no, if this whole Gigantamaxing is true they will give Charizard a new form to have an excuse for it to be the Champion's Ace which I personally hate...

    Not only is it very difficult to guess exact names of characters and pokemon from the direct, there are also other details in this leak that whilst not shown in this direct can be inferred from the footage and descriptions that was shown.

    - There is a small scene of Sobble being interacted with in the trailer and you can see a tent in the background indicates that the camping could be true.
    - The protagonist is shown shaking a tree and berries falling to the ground indicates the encounter with the chipmunk pokemon could be true.
    - The sheep pokemon being described as easily startled indicates there could be a trial/test where they're frightened by another pokemon.

    That... actually makes it more credible to me, because otherwise Charizard being his ace seems very random.
